Need-Based-Scholarships for Private School Tuition and
The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund (NOSF) is accepting
applications for the 2018-2019 school year for need-based
scholarships for grades kindergarten through eighth worth up
to $1,500 for children to use at a nonpublic school or $500
for homeschool expenses. Families need to reside in Allen,
Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron,
Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca,
Van Wert, Williams, Wood or Wyandot Counties.
NOSF is a partner with the Children’s Scholarship Fund and
awards need-based scholarships to provide parents with a
choice for their child’s education. The Children’s
Scholarship Fund was founded in 1998 by the late Ted
Forstmann and the late John Walton who saw a need for
educational alternatives for families.
Since 1999, the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund has awarded
a total of $12.6 million in scholarships to 14,700 students,
part of that includes $4.3 million in matching funds. All
funds raised locally by NOSF are matched by the Children’s
Scholarship Fund and are used for scholarships in NW Ohio.
The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund is the only privately
funded need-based scholarship program in northwest Ohio that
awards scholarships to children who otherwise might not be
able to afford private schools for kindergarten through
eighth grade. Eligible families are required to demonstrate
their financial need as measured by standards similar to the
Federal School Lunch program.
